Each year Nepacs hosts an annual awards event at which a number of awards are presented to prison staff, probation/CRC staff and voluntary sector organisations to highlight the work of exceptional individuals or innovative good practice in promoting resettlement.

The aim is to maintain a focus on rehabilitation within the criminal justice system and to ensure that good practice and ideas are broadcast as widely as possible so that they can be replicated elsewhere.

An offender is 39% less likely to re-offend following release if they have maintained family ties during their sentence.
